Using the Liturgical Year
to Teach Your Students!
The Liturgical Calendar is a powerful way of understanding the mystery of Jesus Christ.
So the entirety of this series — every grade — is structured around the Liturgical Year.
Best of all:
It is easy-to-use and helps catechists teach with confidence.
We provide a teacher-written lesson for each session with activities and games that are ready to go — with no prep!
Each lesson is simple and clear, so even catechists with no teaching experience can use it with ease.
EVERY LESSON Features:
Activities that Engage Students
We made sure that session plans include activities that engage all five senses.
Unity with the Liturgical Year
Year-round alignment with the liturgical year in all grade levels ensures students are learning what the Church has to teach them!
Clear and concise lessons
Short and straightforward session plans ensure any catechist can easily use them — even without teaching experience!
Parent take-home lessons and activities engage the family with the liturgical year and ensures seamless connection between parish catechesis and family Faith life.

Student work for each grade is spread across three small booklets (8 sessions per booklet)
